EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ Yankee Glide held off Captain Claude to earn a 2 3/4-lengths victory Tuesday night in the $500,000 Peter Haughton Memorial Final at the Meadowlands.
Driven by Berndt Lindstedt, the 2-year-old son of Valley Victory finished the one-mile race in 1:57 1-5.
``I only had to speak to him a little in the stretch,'' Lindstedt said. ``He's the best 2-year-old at the moment.''
Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Yankee Glide paid $3.80, $2.40 and $2.20. Captain Claude returned $4 and $3.60. Oneacme Trotterkit held on for third and was worth $3.60.
